Rifle Brigade sheltering

A Wellington Regiment waiting in a trench to enter Bapaume, 29th August 1918. The photo shows the open country the New Zealand Division was fighting in at this time. This was a welcome contrast to the devastated country and waterlogged trenches that was typical of the Ypres area. 1
